Why perform?

We asked some professional musicians and music teachers this million dollar question.
Here’s what they had to say. 

Watch this short video to find out how performing helps students grow, achieve their goals and feel successful.

Getting the chance to perform what you have been working on is a great way to…

  • Celebrate your hard work
  • Practice performing in front of a safe group of fellow musicians
  • Learn from the experience both as a performer and audience member.
  • Build confidence!
“I love seeing the growth in each of my students and celebrating with them,” says Melissa Sondergeld-Hood, voice and piano teacher at Confident Voice Studio.
Piano teacher Western Li-Summerton believes performance is “beneficial for students because it shows them the power of their musical gifts. To know that your performance can create positive change in a listener creates meaning and value in a students music education.”

How does performing help students grow, achieve their goals and feel successful? 

When you perform, you learn a lot about yourself and the areas you need to grow in.

If you’ve set any musical or performance goals throughout your journey, a performance is the perfect opportunity to see how far you’ve come and assess were you can grow.

When you perform, you are exercising your ability to share an expression of yourself. Performing, like giving a speech or a presentation, builds your confidence.

What’s more, the process of learning and producing a finished product or piece of music presents a template for students to carry in to other aspects of their life.

Students learn to comprehend difficult aspects of learning, and to enjoy the process of polishing a song.

12 Ways Parents Can Help An Only Child Not Feel Lonely

Having an only child gives you a mature, diligent, and conscientious little perfectionist—but it also comes with some tough parenting moments. 

Fifty years ago, people frequently saw only children as socially anxious, shy, pampered, and lonely. However, the tide has shifted, and as the percentage of only children increases, their status in society has risen. According to the Pew Research Center, 22% of youngsters lacked siblings once their mothers reached the end of childbearing age in 2015, compared with 11% in 1967.

Families come in all shapes and sizes. There are families with more than 12 children, and others with none. A small family differs dramatically from a large one and, consequently, comes with an entirely different set of challenges and rewards.

Being an only child has many advantages, but there are disadvantages, too.

Does being an only child mean you are destined to be lonely?

Definitely Not! It’s important to understand that not having more children isn’t hurting your only child and isn’t destined to be lonely, pampered, or spoiled.

As a parent, there is much you can do to help your child adapt to being an only child and suffer less loneliness.
